Many of the world's most vulnerable people live in areas that do not have easy access to oral health care. The IFDH is encouraging its members to develop projects that can help close this gap. Projects where Dental Hygienists can share their knowledge of oral health with these vulnerable populations.
To support you in your project, IFDH has developed a fact sheet for getting started. We will also present an online webinar to assist you in planning and implementing your project. Click here for more details.
